Funny Women Improv Workshop

Funny Women Improv Workshop

7th March 2015

Join Funny Women and its experienced team of comedy improvisors for a special workshop to teach you all about the art of improv comedy. In this fun and friendly class you won’t need any drama, acting, comedy or improv experience. You don’t even have to be funny! We're here to teach you the basics and show you how you can improvise your way to success.

Improv comedy is very different to stand up comedy. You work with a team, bounce off one another and use your collective imaginations to create other worlds, characters and scenarios. It's a great skill to develop and use in everyday life whenever you can.

In this fun and friendly workshop you'll learn core improvisation skills such as comic timing, how to say "yes, and ...", how to develop characters and storylines and most importantly, how to listen. So book your place now and unleash your creativity. 

TICKETS: ON SALE NOW!

PRICE: Full Price  £49.50 

            Concs/Students/BFFs  £39.50

DATE: Saturday 7th March

Thinking on your feet is a vital too for both business and personal success, and can also be hilarious! Improv comedy is big in America and is making its way across the pond to have a huge impact on the UK comedy scene. And it’s so easy! You just have to bring your imagination.

OUT OF CHARACTER: FIND YOUR PERSONA

In comedy we often project a heightened characters of ourselves out of fear of failure, but sometimes these characters can be hilarious and we should use them to our advantage on the stage.

CAN’T FIND THE WORDS: PODCASTS

Want to be funny in a different medium? Crooked Pieces show you how to write and create podcasts.
